Bar geekdom knows no bounds. Over the last decade, companies have created all kinds of over-the-top gadgets to help the cocktail obsessed craft and serve drinks with unparalleled flair. And we want them all—even if we’ll only use them once or twice a year. From wacky shakers to pricey tools to floating glassware, here are seven awesomely insane bar gadgets that you definitely don’t need, but will certainly drool over.
If traditional shaking isn’t your jam, turn the whole practice on its head with Monkey Shoulder’s Konga Shaker. Launched last year, the Konga Shaker (pictured above), is not only about three times the size of a typical cocktail shaker, but it also has two handles, which allow bartenders to turn the shaker quickly to mix drinks (appropriately, the movement looks a lot like you’re dancing the Konga). The design is based on a shaker that was popular during the 1930s, but Monkey Shoulder’s update comes with a few technical improvements, including the addition of a sieve. Though the Konga Shaker isn’t currently available for sale, that won’t stop us from dreaming of extra-large batches of hand-spun Gimlets this summer.
